With equal parts of Orange County punk, honky tonk country, and rockabilly sensibilities, Reno Divorce strikes a unique chord of their own in a diluted genre of what passes as “Punk rock’n’roll”. Throw in well-crafted and deftly executed songs that straddle the line between Smithereens and Social Distortion, and you’ve got a band that truly stands out amongst the herd. Oh, and there’s one more thing….this aint the boys’ first rodeo…they’ve played with almost all their punk hereos (ALL, Social D, TSOL, Adolescents, Agent Orange, Shattered Faith, X, The Blasters, Motorhead), and shared a tour bus with more contemporary heavy hitters, ala U.S. Bombs, The Bones, and Street Dogs. They’ve worked with the cream of the crop behind the scenes, as well. Their last record, “Tears Before Breakfast” was produced by Jason Livermore at the world famous Blasting Room and the support tours for that album were handled by M.A.D. Booking in Europe, where among other great festivals, they graced the Saturday Night Fever Stage at With Full Force. Always captivating live, and wrought with more hooks than your uncle Bob’s tackle box, Reno Divorce has carved out a reputation as the real nitty gritty, a true “musician’s band” that pushes the envelope with every release, without sounding contrived or formulated. Brent Loveday’s adept songwriting and clever storytelling are brought to life by the bands expert musicianship. With Brent Loveday on lead guitar and vocals, Tim Jadowski on bass, Tye Battistella on Rhythm guitar and Ruben Patino the band fires on all cylinders. backed by a band that fires on all cylinders. Reno Divorce has earned honors in Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Loud Fast Rules, and (more importantly to the band) the respect of their peers.

Vices I Admire is an alternative/indie rock band dedicated to writing honest and passionate music.

Dave Curtis, Mickey Dollar and Mark Towne met in 2002 while studying at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. During that time they balanced college-life with rehearsals, performances, a few DIY regional tours and the release of their first album, Plan B. (recorded at The Blasting Room, 2005).

In 2007 Vices I Admire relocated to Denver and parted ways with original bassist, Robert Marston. The band continued to write new material and develop as musicians while they searched for Rob's replacement.

8 months and 21 candidates later, Vices I Admire welcomed Daniel Battenhouse onto the team. The addition of Battenhouse revitalized the group and together they worked around the clock to produce the material that would engender their new album, The Politics of Apathy.

The Politics of Apathy was recorded at Colorado Sound Studios in May/June of 2009. JP Manza (engineer) and Ian Pinder (producer) provided the necessary direction and perspective to best capture the particular mood and style of each song: from the dance-pop inspired, "Sweetest Girl", to the anthemic head-banger, "Kiss Kiss", The Politics of Apathy showcases the musical maturation and diverse talent of Vices I Admire.

With a release date slated for January of 2010, The Politics of Apathy is a long overdue snapshot of the music and lives of Vices I Admire. Keep your eyes on this spot for updates, news and more.

The Blackouts

Ali -lead vocals/guitar
Kate -lead guitar/vocals
Susan-bass/vocals
Hope - drums/vocals

The Blackouts are a Denver based all female hard rock band. They began as a garage punk band in 2008, organized by British guitar player Kate Innes. Innes is defined by her unrestrained, raw, and in your face guitar playing. She was introduced to native Denver guitar player Ali Frankfurt, who after two years replaced the original singer. Frankfurt's aggressive vocal style has been compared to Bon Scott of AC/DC, transforming The Blackouts sound. In late 2011, Susan Phelan joined the band on bass. Phelan has played in numerous projects, where she plays a multitude of styles. Her ability and experience has transcended The Blackouts to a new level. California drummer Hope Bertsch was discovered through an advertisement, whose style and experience became the solid backbone of this foursome. The chemistry is undeniable and the band continues to work relentlessly! Today they are rockin' harder than ever with an aggressive and driving sound, reminiscent of bands like Motorhead, L7, AC/DC, and Joan Jett.

The Eight Bucks Experiment

We started this in the spring of 95. I don't know why we did it, or what the hell we were thinking. Bored, restless, or just stupid. Maybe all three, but really I think for me it was something else. Some people start bands because they want to have fun. I think I got into this because I hate mainstream music. Since I was a child I remember hating the radio. When the Experiment started punk rock had been mined out by the powers that be. Pop punk, and Ska (third, fifth, ninth, I don't know what wave), were just a flick of the radio away.

Punk rock had left the dirty clubs and basements, and found it's way to the mall. Yikes. I got into this as a big middle finger to how lame punk rock had become. Hack bands ripping off other bands trying to be the next big thing (and look Blink did it!). Originality, guts, and volume, had been replaced by a tidal wave of banality. Crybaby Emo bands, and sissy PC zines with bad writers and shity layouts, (hopefully Hit List will destroy them), made punk rock about as cutting edge as nerf.
You might not have heard of us but you probably have seen us either on tour (we've played about a 1000 shows in 46 states) or in the movie SLC Punk we played the band ECP. That's the story morning glory.
